    Ive been a blues fan for some years and I keep hearing reference to The Killing Floor does any one know what the killing floor is or represents. Ive heard it in many a blues songs and am curious as to its meaning. Most songs that it is referensed is Pre 1940s.

    Ironic isn't it? A butcher/guitar player giving you the low down on Killing Floor Blues. Killing floor of the slaughter house.
